  1. “Bonnie and Claude” first appeared in Bunty #1501 (October 18, 1986) – #1514 (January 17, 1987). They kidnap Laura wanting the ransom money to start a dancing studio. Laura learns she can easily outwit them so she stays with them as she hated her school. They end up saving her from another kidnapper so her father Lord Balmain gives them money for their dancing school. Their punishment for kidnapping Laura is they have to teach her to dance during summer holidays.

  2. Thanks Ronnie for dates, and Goof for artist information. Andy Tew is an artist I recognise now but still haven’t updated some old posts. I think J. Badesa did one of the PSL, but I don’t have a copy to double check.

    1. I’ve seen all the PSLs, but I don’t think Badesa was involved. All three were done by the same artist, who did a few PSLs around this time, but whom I’ve not been able to identify.
